No this is a build section, u do really need to calm down and stopping being negative towards others!
Its says this underneath the build thread:
When you are modding everything on your Dodge Ram, This is the place to showcase the build.


And now back to the normal thread,
Looks like your making a lot of progress on your truck already!
Did I miss something. Who's being negative ?

I must of missed what ever he said,
to answer questions in the mean time i am keeping them as i need them for state inspections and they dont look half bad. the future might hold a set of bushwackers (or somethin similar)
I have done some work i still got more, with the temp around 9'F it was too cold to work on it and the alternator is busted (after a new battery and terminals) so im runing around to junk yards to get that fixed as well, i also might move up my suspension swap to start plowing (not sure yet), i need push plates because its going from a 05 2500 to my truck
but a buddy of mine is letting me use his garadge this weekend
also i got a mod that i have been drawing out in class to go on the back of my truck, i got a rough sketch so ill post it later and get your opinions

Update: did a bunch of work this weekend this weekend thanks to my lil sisters boy friend, we did new ujoints in front, u and L ball joints on drivers side, new front break calibers, and pads. Pulled off the U joints on drivers side and gues what? they didnt want to replace them so they desided to "Spot weld" all the caps so it took some time but between me beating it for over an hour and Ben beating it for another 45 min we got them out. also figured out why my 4x4 wasnt engaging too, so front end is pretty good goint to do some body work this week and maybe cab lights if i have time, i gotta bring my Girl Friend to get a cast wensday and car shoping too, so ill keep you updated when i can, also a picture of the welded caps
